Macquarie Park

The majority of the firm’s Business Services staff and its Sydney Alternative Legal Services team are based at our office at 66 Talavera Road in Macquarie Park. These premises are 15Km from the CBD and situated close to Macquarie University and Macquarie Centre – a large shopping centre with a food court, restaurants and many other amenities. There are several gyms and childcare options in the area, as well as sporting facilities at the Macquarie University Sports and Aquatic Centre. Macquarie Park is known as a centre for innovation and business collaboration and it meets our vision for a workplace of the future.

Global Mobility and Client Secondments

As a global organisation we support opportunities for our lawyers to spend time in other offices within our network. Fostering our 'one firm' culture, international secondments are a key way in which we share our expertise, enrich experiences and broaden horizons.

Opportunities to spend time at a client working within their in-house legal team are also common.
